Athlete Nutrition - Top Pre & Post Workout Meals & Snacks
What you eat makes a big difference in the quality of your workouts and your performance benefits. Learn what to eat, when and why, to improve your fitness.
Try to consume a meal about 2-4 hours before your workout. This meal should consist of carbs to top off your muscle reserves and some lean protein. Stay away from slow-to-digest foods such as those high in fat and fiber.
If all you have time for is a snack, try to consume a carb-based snack about an hour before you start your workout.
Try incorporating some of these meal and snack options in your nutrition plan depending on what time of day you are exercising:
- Cold or hot cereal with fruit or fruit juice and low-fat or nonfat milk
- French toast or pancakes with maple or fruit syrup plus 2 eggs
- Breakfast burrito (scrambled eggs, salsa, low-fat cheese in a flour tortilla) and fruit juice
- Toast with jam or honey and low-fat yogurt
- Bagel or English muffin with jelly and/or peanut butter, a banana, and fruit juice

Nutrition Science - PowerBar C2Max Dual-Source Energy Blend
What Is It?
A 2:1 glucose to fructose blend found to deliver 20-50% more energy to muscles than glucose alone and improve endurance performance by 8%.
Which Products Have It?
PowerBar sports nutrition products featuring the muscle-fueling innovation, C2Max dual-source energy blend:
- PowerBar Performance Energy bar
- PowerGel Energy Gel
- PowerBar Energy Blasts Energy Chews
- PowerBar Performance Energy Blends
- PowerBar Perform Sports Drink Mix
How Does C2Max Deliver More Energy?
Glucose is the gold standard for fueling muscles. But glucose alone empties more slowly from the stomach than C2Max and is also absorbed across the intestine, and subsequently oxidized (burned) at rates 20-50% lower than C2Max. The C2Max dual-source energy blend of glucose and fructose can mean ~8% greater endurance performance.
Consuming a mixture of both glucose and fructose takes advantage of two separate transport systems within the intestine (SGLT1 for glucose and GLUT5 for fructose). Compared to glucose alone, approximately 20 to 50% more carbohydrate fuel is delivered from the gastro-intestinal tract to the bloodstream and delivered to working muscles when glucose and fructose are taken together in a 2:1 ratio. With C2Max, you will utilize the carrying capacity of two transport systems instead of just one as with glucose alone. When more carbohydrates are delivered, more energy makes its way to working muscles.
Typically, carb intake during exercise is recommended at the rate of about 30-60 grams per hour when exercising less than a few hours. However, when using PowerBar products with C2Max for long duration events, carb consumption can increase to up to 100 grams per hour. Some athletes can tolerate more carbs than others. Practice taking in different amounts of carbohydrates during training to find out what works for you.
